A fiduciary duty is the highest duty imposed by law. Lawyers owe a fiduciary duty to their clients; trustees owe a fiduciary duty to the grantor and beneficiaries of a trust; and business partners owe a fiduciary duty to their other business partners. When fiduciaries breach their obligations, they often face significant liability.

We have brought claims on behalf of law firm and business partners, employers, law firm clients, and beneficiaries of trusts, recovering judgments and settlements totaling millions of dollars. We have also defended lawyers, accountants, and business partners against breach of fiduciary duty lawsuits. Michael Downey has also provided expert testimony on fiduciary obligations relating to the obligations lawyers and accountants owe to their clients.
